Push the Boat Out – Saturday 17th May 2014

I just want to let everyone know about ‘Push the Boat Out’. It is a national RYA initiative that we are joining in with and combining with our own Open Day.

The club will be opening its doors from 9.30am to people of all ages and abilities to come along and have a go at sailing.

Some of you will already know that the BBC were at the Club yesterday filming our activities. They went out on the water, interviewed a few members, filmed one of Howard’s school groups. This will all be broadcast this Friday on the BBC Midlands Tonight programme at about 6.30pm. I am sure this will show the club in a good light. It may also lead to people turning up on Saturday for our Open Day. Information has also gone to local radio and newspapers.

On Saturday the club will be open, with K2O being there in the morning. It is hoped that we will attract visitors throughout the day and get as many as possible out on the water. In the afternoon we plan to do one race, which will give us a chance to show what racing is all about. The race is not part of the Spring Series.

The important thing is to get as many members there as possible to showcase the club. It would be good to get boats rigged so people can look at them and also get some out on the water for people to see.

If you haven’t been up to the club for a while, this is a chance to get back up and see what’s going on. You can also see the new changing facilities which have just been finished and do look very smart.

Look forward to seeing a very busy club, lots of members and visitors.
